Empowering students to prevent bullying

Former Miss Indiana returns to hometown where she says she was bullied



“No one has said anything to my face,” she said. “Pushing kids into the lockers and stuff like that just happens in the movies.”

She said the worst kind of bullying is cyber bullying where rumors are spread.

“They have asked me what does it feel like to have the whole school hate you,” Raines said. “Words do scar.”

Mason pleaded with students to stop bullying and if they witness someone being bullied they should step forward and talk to the victim. She said every student has the power to change a situation and she wanted them to feel empowered to do just that.

“You can save someone’s life,” Mason said. “No one was helping me, I felt worthless.”
